Modeling— Becca Lawton’s Cool Writing Tips . . . Prompt #285

Becca LawtonHere’s an entertaining idea from Rebecca Lawton’s Cool Writing Tips.

Becca’s advisor at Mills College introduced “Modeling,” — an exercise “in which you select an excerpt of masterful writing … and fill in the blanks.”

Rebecca Lawton writes, “Modeling is a sort of Mad Lib exercise, where each part of speech is swapped out for a word of your choice.”

I’m going to enjoy playing with modeling the next time I write for pleasure.

Becca’s Cool Writing Tips will be offered during the month of September 2016 only.

So, if you want to be in on the fun and learn about ways to enhance your writing, join Rebecca Lawton’s Cool Writing Tips. It’s free. The posts are usually short, very easy to read and extremely informative. But hurry, sign-ups end September 3, 2016.
